Is Dry Needling appropriate for me?


Dry needling is an effective tool for multiple clients.  It is very valuable for chronic pain sufferers, but can be used for many others if deemed appropriate.  Understanding U also uses Dry Needling to improve muscular performance and help with proper movement, even in the absence of pain.  A muscle with a trigger point, is not functioning properly, and will not have full strength or mobility.  This can lead to pain and poor mechanics later.  So before you get back to the gym,  work with your motion coach to find out the best plan for you, and if dry needling can help improve your performance. 

What is Dry Needling?


Dry needling is a skilled manual technique using acupuncture needles to penetrate muscular trigger points or other soft tissue dysfunctions.  Trigger point pain is very common, especially for chronic pain sufferers, and is often diagnosed as sciatica, migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, impingement, and more.  More often than not, these pains can be alleviated through skilled dry needling treatments.
